Very hazy deep red - brown beer. Decent cream coloured head. Palate is light and soft, semi dry with mild carbonation. Soft dry wood, trace of vanilla. Sweet floral bubblegum. Mild malt cream. Whisper of sweet red berry fruits. Neutral finish. Nicely joined up. These oak aged La Trappes have a unique character.
